Holocaust museum opens at Belsen

Germany has inaugurated a museum at the site of the Nazi concentration camp where diarist Anne Frank died. The new museum at Bergen-Belsen, in the north of Germany, highlights the fates of those who died at the camp during World War II. Among the exhibits are the drawings and diaries of Jews imprisoned there, plus video statements by survivors. Some 100 survivors were at the ceremony at the camp, where an estimated 50,000 Jews were murdered during the Holocaust.
